This map provides a general look at the military situation in Syria and Iraq on October 20, 2018. The key remaining hot points in Syria are the Euphrates Valley, the province of Idlib and the al-Safa pocket. In Iraq the situation is more stable. However, multiple ISIS cells still operate across the country. They pose a significant security threat to the areas liberated from ISIS near the Syrian-Iraqi border, near and inside the city of Mosul and even to the capital of Baghdad.
